Re: Houston: We have lift off ...

Lol, 300 self-Elo points in one day, but only 50 real Elo points against SF8. At this pace, they will need to reach some 6000 self-Elo points to be competitive with 10xxx run, and maybe 7000 to reach A0 level nets. They even seem to have large inversions in self-Elo versus real-Elo. That plot is a j...

Re: Houston: We have lift off ...

I don't know why you are so enthusiastic. Runs 20xxx and 30xxx are pretty pathetic, especially considering how much resources they have eaten up. Some folks there have overdone something. Just a quick check with the latest engine (rc4) and one of the latest nets: TC: 60'' + 1'' Rank Name Elo +/- Ga...

Re: Komodo MCTS scales worse with TC than Komodo A/B?

Thanks for running this. I don't think that the poor scaling is inherent to MCTS, rather it's just that we have tuned our parameters at levels around 3 seconds a move or so and that means that they will be poorly tuned for time controls far from that level. So I have to start doing some tuning runs...

Re: Comparing Leela Chess Zero with AlphaZero

Probably Leela is stronger than SF without opening book, but " What about SF having access to brainfish database"? Opening book for Stockfish is a big plus for it against Leela. A small book BookX.bin, enabled SF_dev to outperform its performance compared to always starting from initial positions b...

Re: Komodo MCTS scales worse with TC than Komodo A/B?

A couple points worth mentioning. If you want to eliminate the possible distortion of one engine simply being much stronger than the other, I suggest you test Komodo 12.2 mcts (or wait for the bugfix 12.2.1) vs. Komodo 9 (or 9.02 or 9.1 if you prefer), which is our best free version and is very eve...
